Mayor injures Woman dressed as Tomato!

The Lord Mayor of Belfast has apologised to a council worker left with back injuries after he tried to leapfrog her during a photoshoot. Lorraine Mallon had been dressed as a tomato to launch a gourmet garden event in Botanic Gardens last month. The councillor said he attempted the act of athleticism at the request of photographers. Ms Mallon suffered a slipped disc when Jim Rodgers' knee accidently hit her head, when he attempted to vault her.

"I just caught the top of her head and unfortunately I injured her."
"I just hope now that she makes a speedy and full recovery."

Lorraine Mallon, who works for the arts section of Belfast City Council's development department, has been unable to return to work since the accident happened on 4 September. Link
